Blog: A FAITHFUL BUDGET FOCUSED ON NEED, RATHER THAN SCARCITY!

Mar 22, 2012 | By Marge Clark, BVM

Oh, what a relief. Representatives of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths present federal budget recommendations that focus on need, rather than scarcity. 

Fiscal Year 2013

Priorities for a FAITHFUL BUDGET: Acting with Mercy and Justice as One Nation Under God.

This document was released on March 22. We look at people and their experiences, what has already been lost to persons who struggle to survive economically, in food security, housing and many other areas. The document points up that International assistance is less than 1% of the federal budget; while military funding eats more than half the discretionary budget. Take a look!
